What Happens If You Swallow A Bottle Cap?

Swallowing a bottle cap can cause problems, but it’s not going to kill you.

You may be able to feel the plastic under your tongue or at the back of your throat. If you can’t dislodge it on your own, you’ll need to see a doctor. He or she will use a scope with a camera to look for the cap and then remove it.

But don’t panic. You’re not likely to swallow a bottle cap by accident. It’s possible, though, if you’re drinking bottled water while driving or exercising vigorously enough that you don’t notice when some of the liquid dribbles out of your mouth. And if you do swallow one by mistake, there are ways to deal with it without worrying too much about it.
